Still missing Ireland (BEDM Day 6)

A little later than I should -because I got too occupied with playing games and online conversations but since my blog is still on Irish time it is actually still May 6- , but for today's post I am participating in Five Minute Friday, something I have done more often in the past and I always enjoyed doing.
I somehow never seem to get a lot typed down in Five minutes but so be it.
Today's prompt is miss and the below is what came out when I thought about that word and typed straight for five minutes. 

After leaving almost 2 years ago I still miss Ireland. 
It’s strange to realize how after living there for 7.5 years this country somehow had really become my home. 
The place where my oldest grew up. The place where my second was born. The place where I brought my one month old to after she was born at home in my mums home in Suriname. 
There is something about Ireland that I will always miss. It is the place where I got to have a family, a complete one, that grew by the years. A (rented ) house with a garden like I always wanted, a car and a good job. 
And I even was able to do things for God. Singing in worship teams, leading worship and teaching in small groups. 
Leaving Ireland has meant giving up so much. Not only for me but also for my girls. 
And still I want to believe that some day God will somehow give it back or replace it with something new , something better, just like He has promised in His word.

I hope that you enjoyed this post. What do you think about when you think about the word 'miss '?
I would love to hear from you.
